WSOP Main Event Final Table Set

Posted on by RTR Rachel

After nearly two grueling weeks, the biggest poker tournament in the world has finally played down to a final table.  The 2010 November Nine was set when Brandon Stevens figured his poker odds were better than anyone else’s and went all-in with A-K.  Unfortunately for Stevens, Matthew Jarvis used some no-brainer poker strategy in calling Stevens’ all-in bet with pocket queens.  The board didn’t help Stevens at all, and he was eliminated in 10th place with a measly $635,011 prize. 

With Stevens gone, the WSOP Main Event final table is now set with the following players:

1. Jonathan Duhamel: 65,975,000 chips
2. John Dolan: 46,250,000
3. Joseph Cheong: 23,525,000
4. John Racener: 19,050,000
5. Matthew Jarvis: 16,700,000
6. Filippo Candio: 16,400,000
7. Michael Mizrachi: 14,450,000
8. Soi Nguyen: 9,650,000
9. Jason Senti: 7,625,000

With the final poker table now decided, many people are already making predictions on who will prevail.  Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi is the only big name player left, and he has already had an amazing year in 2010.  Mizrachi made poker news by winning the $50,000 Player’s Championship along with $1.559 million, and he also made the final poker tables in both the Seven Card Stud Championship and the Limit Hold’em Championship.  Unfortunately for Mizrachi, he is a bit low on poker chips as compared to the rest of the field.

Jonathan Duhamel certainly has the chips advantage, but he has only cashed in a couple of poker games prior to the Main Event (both of which came this year).  John Dolan is a semi-experienced casino poker player, and he is in a good position with 46,250,000 chips.  John Racener is another experienced holdem poker player among the November Nine group since he has cashed in quite a few poker tournaments

Whoever is the first player to bust out of the Main Event will receive a payout of $811,823 while the remaining players are all guaranteed over $1 million.  The person who plays their poker hands the best and wins the tournament will walk away with $8.94 million.
